'What makes our relationship special is our friendship throughout college before we ever became a couple...'

Jeffrey and Rachel (Fisher) Lobdell, UMass Amherst ‘08

"Jeffrey and I met the first day of freshman year and stayed friends throughout college. We didn't start dating until our second semester senior year, and the rest is history. We both moved to Boston, got married and are starting a family.

What makes our relationship special is our friendship throughout college before we ever became a couple and that we had the same college friends, all who have been there throughout the years.

We recently went back for a night to visit the campus, eat at our favorite restaurants and visit all the great bars. The visit was extra special because we were celebrating Jeffrey's completion of his online MBA at Isenberg School of Management."
